Hi Kyrre,

I don't know of any "neural" network packages off the top of my head, but
there are distributed programming mechanisms such as MPI (message
passing), Charm++ (distributed objects), and even Apple's Xgrid[1]
(distribute compute-intensive tasks), that can all probably be made to
work on FreeBSD.

Are any of these similiar to what you are looking for?
